It's not so much a question of what? but when my friend!

I'm certain the Pono Music download catalog will be based on the Apple i-tunes model so Neil doesn't have to worry too much about up-front money for that end of his business plan the studios will be more than eager and willing to throw some resources pursuing this new revenue stream.

For Neil it's the up-front money needed to sign a manufacturing agreement to get millions of these nifty little players to market so the ratio of player cost vs download cost is balanced and once again probably based on the i-pod/i-tunes model to some extent.

The 30 dates that Neil & Crazy Horse are performing across Europe this summer should net somewhere @ $20 + million dollars so a manufacturing license down payment may just be the ultimate mission of the tour while living the life of the great wandering Canadian King Neil as he and the Crazy Horse entourage conquer Europe.
